    The project (actually a future product I'd like to market) would be enhanced if I could offer it with a wireless remote (like a key fob or garage door remote).. A simple on-off remote that could be used by someone driving a car and turning off/on a pump (about 7amps max) on a trailer behind them being towed. I see some similar projects here on LCD lighting, but no answers for my simple mind. Is there a place where I could just order a 'kit' that includes remote/reciever/relay (not sure if thats the correct terminology)..
    Thanks so much!

    yes. Rentron.com has what you need for pretty cheap. When you go to mass-production, buying the transmitter (keychain) and building the receiver will cut your costs immensely.

    Thanks retched... Unfortunately for me, that website may as well have been in Chinese.. Any place that sells a package? I was hoping to find a place where I could just buy a remote with reciever and relay...
